You deworm your pets every year….but do you deworm yourself? Did you know that most countries around the world regularly deworm….but for some reason, in the US we don’t think it’s necessary.
Unfortunately.. it is necessary. Parasites are absolutely everywhere, and they’re often microscopic so you don’t even see them, but they can still wreak havoc in the body. Parasites are most common in the intestines but can travel to other organs as well, the next most common occurrence is liver flukes.
Fortunately..there are plenty of natural ways to get rid of most types of parasites. Some of the more serious infections are best dealt with through pharmaceutical antiparasitic medication, but the vast majority of the parasites you encounter can be removed with herbal protocols.
Where do they come from:
Because they’re often microscopic, you won’t see them, but they can be found in contaminated food and water, unwashed fruits or veggies, undercooked meat or fish, unfiltered ice, or water.
Pinworms are really common in preschool-age children. Also known as enterobiasis, this is the most common helminth infestation in the United States, with an estimated 42 million infested Americans, translating to 14% of the population.
Another way of contracting a parasite, more common on tropical beaches, is from walking barefoot on the sand.
Another key fact when it comes to parasites is that they are relatively easy to pass around, so they’re easily transmitted through entire families. This is why most practitioners recommend treating an entire family when any one member is found to have parasites.
Dr. Jay Davidson (hyperlink the name to this: https://drjaydavidson.com/tag/parasites/) said the way to test for parasites is to take your fingers and place them on your pulse. If you have a pulse, you have parasites.
All jokes aside, here are the most common symptoms seen with parasites:
There are several different types of parasites. There’s protozoa, tapeworms, roundworms, and each classification has several sub-classifications under it. For example, Giardia is a protozoa and Trichinella is a roundworm.
Let’s talk about some of these different types….
How to kill parasites
You have two main choices here to kill parasites:
No matter which method you chose I strongly urge you to be “ready” for a parasite cleanse before you do one.
What does this mean? It means making sure all of your detoxification pathways are open before you begin killing something that will give off toxins…because if your pathways aren’t open when you kill parasites, guess where those toxins go? They stay in your body and circulate around, causing damage everywhere they go! If you make sure that your lymph is flowing, your bowels are moving, your kidneys and liver are supported; however, you’ll be in great shape when you actually start killing the parasites.
I designed a course to walk you through killing parasites step by step and I highly recommend you take this quick and easy course. It’s only $45 and can be fully completed in under an hour.
By the end of the course you’ll know how to:
How to keep them from coming back:
If you’ve successfully killed off parasites, using my course or some other method…how do you make sure you don’t get them back right away?!
First of all, minimize your exposure by doing things like washing fruits and vegetables thoroughly prior to eating them, avoiding pork, cooking meat and seafood well (no more sushi – sorry!).
Second of all, fix your FOUNDATION for health so your immune system and healthy microbes can kill parasites for you to keep them from taking hold should a few slip by your fruit washing or should you wander back to that sushi! Parasites can more easily take hold when people are run down, so laying the foundation for health is one of the best things you can do to ensure they don’t come back.
Third, repeat the parasite cleanse on a yearly basis at least. Simply make it part of your routine. Every year at the end of summer, for example, you could do a month-long parasite cleanse to make sure nothing has slipped through the immune system’s patrol!
Parasites are everywhere, but they don’t have to ruin your life. Start with one big cleanse to get a clean slate, work on reducing your exposure, and lay the foundations for health so your immune system can help kill parasites and keep them from taking hold again, and you’ll be all set! Remember, if you are going to embark on a parasite cleanse, make sure that you do it SAFELY and prepare your body first!
